What's Christmas Wombat About

Publisher Summary

“Slept. Scratched. Slept.” Indeed, it seems like Christmas will be just another day for the wombat . . . until she smells carrots! In this charming picture book, the star of Diary of a Wombat goes head to head with Santa’s reindeer in competition for carrots—and wins. Then, as an accidental stowaway on Santa’s sleigh, she learns that carrots are internationally available. No wonder she isn’t hungry for treats on Christmas morning! Engaging illustrations delightfully complement the spare text in this unique, wombat’s-eye view of a favorite holiday.

5.0 / 7.0

A pretty funny story about a wombat that’s so excited to find carrots out on Christmas Eve. :) I thought this book was pretty cute, but some may want to know that there aren’t complete sentences.

5.0 / 7.0

If you’re trying to encourage vegetable eating during the holiday season, this book would be amazing. The illustrations are awesome, and humorous, and the entire story is so unexpected and different that it really enjoyable, even though the entire point seems to be gorging on carrots.
